ALL PICKS ARE AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD.
4.5 Playoffs – flight 1
Greenhill Red/Rossouw: 8-0 and 36-4; JCC/Reiman: 6-1 and 29-6; Brookhaven/Harlee: 6-1 and 25-10
4.5 Playoffs – flight 2Greenhill Blue/Rossouw: 7-0 and 26-9; Lakes/Way: 7-1 and 31-9; Village/Warren: 6-2 and 23-12
Would it be too much to ask for a Rossouw versus Rossouw final? His Red team was pretty impressive with the way they handled their flight play business. There are two problems with predicting fall playoff matchups – (1) the deep rosters and (2) it’s the fall so I’d guess the playing time will be spread a little more evenly, leaving teams more vulnerable than they might be otherwise. All that being said, I’ll give the nod to the Red squad but at least half these teams have the ability to win it all.
4.0 Playoffs – flight 1Huffines/Ratcliffe: 8-0 and 29-11; Garland1/Sisk: 7-1 and 29-11; Huffines/McIntosh: 7-1 and 28-12; Eldorado/Browning: 7-2 and 27-18
4.0 Playoffs – flight 2McKinney/Parrish: 8-1 and 32-13; Fretz/Noel: 7-1 and 30-11; McKinney/Peterson: 6-2 and 29-11; Fretz/Jayaram: 6-2 and 29-11
GTC/Sisk dropped their last match after the playoff spot was sewn up. Without that loss they would have been the #1 overall seed. If Big John doesn’t decide to play his scrubs, I like them to win this flight. I’ll even take them to win it all. I’d say Huffines to finish second but that’s too easy.
Oh, Corey. This team is a tease. You’ve got a nice top 6 or 7 but if one or two guys aren’t available you drop off pretty quickly. McKinney/Peterson has the other problem. A long, deep roster of #2 and #3 lines that have been oh so close before but not quite gotten over the hump. McKinney/Parrish came out of a tough flight but getting beat so easily by CC scares me a little. I’ll take Corey’s group and hope all his guys show up.
3.5 Playoffs - I have no predictions on the 3.5s because I don’t know any of these players. As always, your guess is as good as mine.
